Mount a remote device in tunneling “sshfs”


Several articles ago I explained how to mount a remote machine via FTP, so that the PC on which we operate is seen as a directory locale. The program used to establish the connection between the two machines is unpronounceable: "curlftpfs". Today we will do the same thing, but the protocol used will be the 'SSH. We will find a number of similarities with the article previously developed, one in all the impronunciabilità the software used: "sshfs".

How much of the useful software, "sshfs" is directly installed via repository. It will be enough to look inside the graphical tool in use at the distribution.
